Paper Abstract

To enable frequent estimates of land surface temperature (LST) from satellite measurements, and to obtain the surface temperature diurnal cycle, two new algorithms are applied to observations from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) and the polar orbiting imager NOAA/AVHRR. Results are evaluated against a wide range of ground observations. Evaluations against the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) observations and observations within an RMS accuracy of about 1-2 K, standard error of about 1 K and bias of less than 1 K. LSTD from the GOES can be implemented well to the NOAA/AVHRR with the right algorithm.
